Writing 101: NonFiction – A Hopeful Trip to Vancouver. #everydayinspiration #amwriting


Today’s Writing 101 prompt has to do with maps, picking a location and writing about it.

Downtown, Vancouver, BC, Canada.

I would like to have a little vacation this summer. I want to spend a week at most, in Vancouver, BC. My plan is to use airmiles for two plane tickets and book an apartment through AirBnB, to share with my brother located in downtown Vancouver.

 I have to do more research for this trip. I wanted to see if I could get flights to Vancouver first but the airmiles website is being difficult and it’s not showing any available flights to Vancouver. What good is saving up your airmiles if you can’t use them when you would like to? I have looked at booking flights without airmiles and there are a ton of flights flying back and forth daily from Edmonton to Vancouver and vice versa, so there is no reason I shouldn’t be able to buy a flight using airmiles.

I’m also searching for a few activities to do in Vancouver. Since the Winter Olympics were held in Vancouver not so long ago, I would like to see the Olympic torch. I want to shop in Vancouver and I would like to go to Stanley Park and Granville island.  I would also like to visit a pub or two and see something at a local gallery or museum. If I can get out to a beach near Vancouver, that would be great as well. Most places I can take the train to and from and I believe there is a bus you can buy a two-day pass to and use it to see the tourist destinations in Vancouver. 

I’v been to Victoria on Vancouver Island, but never the city of Vancouver itself so I’m excited to check the city out. Hopefully, I’m able to plan the trip for some time soon. Thanks for reading.

    I used RBC Avion points for free flight to Vancouver with no issues…I will do the Hop on Hop Off bus tour that does Stanley Park, Granville, English Beach for flexibility…we could have been in Vancouver at the same time!😊

    Well i can fully understand your wish to go and visit Vancouver. Such a lovely city.
    The best beaches are Jericho beach and kitsilano beach, both are sandy and really nice. You can go stand-up paddling there and many other things. For pubs I would recommend one of the many micro-breweries in gas town. There are many nice ones. And eat sushi. There are many family-sushi-houses. Perfect. Enjoy it!
